Best AYPE Item Ever?

I’m not sure how I feel about the actual contents of this volume, but I would love to find out who created the original illustration for its cover.  The same illustration appears on the front cover of a related publication, Official classifications, and lists of exhibitors of the poultry and pigeon exhibit, which may be the more interesting of the two.  So far, the University of Washington holds the only cataloged copies known to avian-kind.

I joined The Shubert Archive as Processing Archivist in 2015, having worked previously at numerous archives and special collections, including the University of Washington, New York Public Library, King County Archives, and New York University. I earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from Hunter College, City University of New York and an M.L.I.S. from the Palmer School of Library & Information Science, Long Island University. I have been a Certified Archivist since 2005. Throughout my career, I have been active professionally and held several leadership roles. Among my favorites are: Dance Librarians Discussion Group convener and editor of the newsletter of the Performing Arts Roundtable of the Society of American Archivists. I also was involved with the American Theatre Archive Project, a national grassroots initiative dedicated to assisting active performing arts companies with the preservation of their legacy. In addition, I have significant experience as a freelance archival consultant.
